What’s included with home care at Helping Hands?
As much or as little as you’d like! Our carers have experience supporting every type of illness and condition, including dementia, Parkinson’s, tetraplegia, post-operative care and much more. Therefore, whether you require a short visit from 30 minutes once a week, several calls a day or even full-time live-in care, we can help. You may need support with your mobility, medication, personal care or attending appointments, grocery shopping or even visiting friends; no matter what your requirements our carers can be the extra help you need to enable you to live your life to the fullest in the comfort of your own home.
Why you may need home care
You may feel you’d benefit from a carer for a variety of reasons, or perhaps it’s your loved ones who have suggested it. Regardless of the reasons, receiving care should be viewed as an enhancement of your independence, not a compromise of it, as your carer will do everything they can to promote your way of life and ensure you keep living the way you always have.
Carers for limited hour visits
When you are visited by a carer from the Newark branch you don’t just get a carer; you get someone who loves their work, values their customers and will hopefully become a friend very quickly. You might need a little support with some housework, meal preparation or perhaps you need to be accompanied to appointments; regardless of your needs, a carer can be with you as often or frequently as you require. Our nurse-led care means that even with complex needs or in a palliative situation you can remain in your own home, surrounded by memories, mementoes and beloved pets that are so important. Visits through 24 hours also means that if you need a carer overnight it is never a problem. Perhaps you have medication that needs to be given around the clock, need to be monitored closely or just find it hard to sleep, one of our carers will be with you so you never feel isolated.
Intermittent long-term visits
Respite care is usually shorter-term in nature, often one to two weeks, and exists to give your usual carer a break, whether they are a family member or a professional. Taking regular breaks from work is essential for everyone, but even more important when you spend your time caring for someone else. Respite care can be arranged to give your regular carer a break for planned holidays, family emergencies or any situation that requires them to not be able to provide care in the shorter-term. A dedicated support plan means that the customer’s routines and preferences will always be followed, meaning your carer gets to take a relaxing break and your care continues as if they were still there.
Carers for immediate situations
Immediate emergency care can be needed for any number of reasons, such as an unexpected discharge from hospital or unavailability of the regular carer. When care is needed in an emergency though it can cause anxiety for family members trying to make arrangements, especially if they live some distance from their loved one. Helping Hands’ Newark team can take all the pressure away from you by providing a carer in your loved one’s home within 24 hours, meaning that you don’t have to put your own life on hold and can just concentrate on their recovery.
